"...According to the indictment, anyone who happened on the exercise could be killed if he or she didn't acquiesce to Hutaree demands...

"But I didn't say Simon Says!...Boom!"

But seriously, this sounds more and more like veritable tripe by the passing hour.

What is interesting to note is that at the end of that article, FBI Agent Brad Garrett states, '"This crowd tends to be heavily armed and they are all conspiracy theorists that the government is trying to take over," he said.'

Ummm... Health care? Auto manufacturers? Banks? Home loans?

The government IS taking over everything and that is NO CONSPIRACY.

But now...Anyone espousing such facts can be painted with the "militia, conspiracy-nut, whackjob" brush and ignored. The meme has been planted.

Your argument held water before Waco and Ruby Ridge... sorry... do not trust our government.. never will again.

I am confused about your position. So even if it is shown that law enforcement acted on good intelligence and thwarted a viable terrorist action before it was enacted, you wouldn't applaud the action? Because they over-reacted at Waco and Ruby Ridge, is law enforcement obligated to inaction?

BTW, I don't know if law enforcement acted correctly or not in this situation. All I am saying is let's wait until we know more about the situation before we jump to judgment.

There is still no underlying crime.

They are not charged with Sedition, and Conspiracy to commit Sedition; rather, they are charged with “seditious conspiracy” which in my view is an entirely different thing.

Have you ever heard of someone being charged with “murderous conspiracy”?? Of course not, but plenty of people are charged with Murder, and Conspiracy to Commit Murder. “Murderous Conspiracy” is rightly known as “communicating a threat”, but it is not treated the same as murder.

I am with you. I realized after the ATF and FBI murder of the Branch Davidians (and a Congressional whitewash of the deed) that this government had slipped over the line to becoming a tyranny. For years I thought this could be reversed at the ballot box, but I have far less confidence of that now.

What is happening now is the government is subtly trying to link all opposition to the "right-wing militias" and racist hatemongering in an attempt to criminalize dissent.

If they did, then I would agree... but how do we know? To this day, the government claims that they were justified at Waco and Ruby Ridge. They can fabricate evidence to substantiate their claims. We have their track record of lies... such as denying the many terrorist attacks that have taken place since 9/11 are just isolated Amish causing problems. I do not believe anything I see or hear unless substantiated by independent sources. How can anyone with a brain ignore the lies and deceit that has become our once Great Nation? How?

That is what appears to exactly be what is happening. I love my Country... I grew up to serve and protect her... but she has been damaged and the media that is supposed to stop this from ever happening has taken and active part in the attack from within.

but how do we know?

That was my point. It is too early to tell. I don't immediately assume that the government is right nor do I immediately assume the government is wrong.

As appalled as I was by Waco and Ruby Ridge, I guess I haven't reached your level of cynicism yet.
